Our Smoked Apple Pie is proof that man cannot live on meat alone. He needs dessert too. This homemade apple pie recipe takes you back to a simpler time when pies were baked in wood-fired stoves and cooled on the windowsill. Savor the aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg mingling in the air with apple wood smoke. And when it’s all done, enjoy the tartness of Granny Smith apples and the sweetness of brown sugar with a subtle hint of citrus.

5-6 Servings

Step 1 Of 8
1. Preheat your smoker to 350°F. Toss wood chunks onto hot coals.
2. In a large bowl, combine apple wedges, brown sugar, lemon juice, orange zest, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.
3. Add butter to melt in a large skillet over medium heat.
4. Transfer apple mixture to the heated skillet. Cook until the apples are slightly soft, about 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
5. Lay one of pie crusts across the bottom of a large skillet. Pour apple filling over the dough. Lay the other crust over the pie filling. Seal the edges of the top and bottom crusts together to secure the filling inside.
6. Whisk the egg yolk and brush it over the top layer of crust. Cut slits into the crust to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with sugar.
7. Place the apple pie in your smoker. Cook until golden, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
8. Remove pie from smoker. Let rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes before serving.
